Despite all our discoveries and advancements, human nature has not changed very much; still today, truth can walk right in front of us while going completely unnoticed.
Jesus had a heart-to-heart talk with His disciples on the evening before His death. He talked about the future and encouraged them to stay on course. He also gave them a little sneak peek of heaven. Heaven is a real place, and there is an unmistakable path that leads there. The Lord told His disciples that He was confident they knew the way – but they were not so sure about that. Here is a snippet of their conversation [John 14:4-5]:
[Jesus said] “And you know where I am going and how to get there.”
“No, we don’t,” Thomas said. “We haven’t any idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”* [*The Living Bible]
This is when Jesus utters His famous statement, which precisely answers their question [John 14:6]:
“I am the way and the truth and the life.”
God is mysterious. The key to unveiling the mystery is recognizing who Jesus is. Believing in Jesus is like marrying into God’s family. Through Him we cry “Abba” – “Daddy”. Growing close to the Almighty and calling Him “Daddy” was unheard of prior to the birth of Jesus.
By getting acquainted with the Lord we study the road-map to heaven. His way of life is basically love in action – no broken life goes unnoticed. Jesus loves indiscriminately, with total abandon and absolutely no strings attached. Following Him we live in His kingdom already – and we know our way home.
